Siddham Alphabet


Siddhaแนƒ script, also known in its later evolved form as Siddhamฤtแน›kฤ, is a medieval  Brahmic 11000โ€“1104D abugida, derived from the Gupta script and ancestral to the Assamese alphabets, Bengali alphabet and Maithili alphabet. It is an ancestor of the Devanagari script and several other Asian writing systems. Now it is used in Japan only where it is known as ๆขตๅญ— (bonji). In general, Siddhaแนƒ script is used for Buddhist mantras and in design. In other regions, it was replaced with other alphabets, for example, with Devanagari.
